The Czech Republic’s Marta Jandova and Vaclav Noid Barta have received mixed reviews since revealing their song “Hope Never Dies”. Some people raised concerns about their chemistry, while others worried about their vocals. Well this evening they performed their Eurovision song live for the first time at “Ceny Andel” – the Czech Music Award Ceremony — and have proven their vocals do work and that they can look into each other’s eyes with some real passion.
Marta and Vaclav went on stage just for themselves, not caring about any staging. They probably don’t want to reveal their secrets until Vienna. Unfortunately, Ceska Televize has provided us with this video with poor sound quality. It seems like you could sense that in the arena, too: Even the hosts of the event asked the audience to be quite during the performances. Nevertheless, Marta and Vaclav’s voices were on point and they really seemed to enjoy singing together. They cheered each other on and really shared their energy with the audience. And, in any event, the Czech Republic has enough time to make this even better. I’m confident they will blow y’all away!
And what do you think of the performance? Let us know!
